CNN Turk Completely Ignoring The Protests
CNN Turk Completely Ignoring The Protests

I Don't live in Turkey but from what i heard from the social media whom live in Turkey it has a huge censorship over the protests from state news outlets on the TV and from yes CNN Turk.

From the past hours or so they have being showing Historical show Program to hiking now on, from what i heard the protests also happened over the country's censorship and the lack of freedom of the press. The majority of the Turkish journalists have being attacking the protests and influenced from the outside even Syria,Russia.


Its rather ironic is it?

The main question still remains will the protest last? all points are showing there is no slowing in the protests as of now and no word has being from the pro ottoman empire government.

If the Western leaning Recep government falls, you can kiss the secular society they now have goodbye as more than likely a more extremist leaning government would take shape.

This would mean, Israel lost its friend/puppet to the north.

It would totally change the balance of power in the mideast as the new government supports Assad/Iran and Russia.

Israel would feel much more alone.

I'd go so far as to say a change in government would mean entering Syria from the north and helping wipe the Rebel Mercenary army.

Here we go again.

If the Western leaning Recep government is secular why is he Backing the Islamist Free Syrian Army in Syria whom are not even secular to begun with?

And if the Recep government is secular why has he failed the kurds and Christians? for you to claim that his secular its like saying Qatar is secular to.

Lets not forget the lack of freedom of the press in Turkey and today was another example.





It would totally change the balance of power in the mideast as the new government supports Assad/Iran and Russia.


And your point is what again? our governments are supporting and backing none democratic states of Qatar Saudi Arabia the same as Israel does.

For anyone claiming that the Current Turkish government is an secular type here's a story from last month.

Church in Turkish capital rejected by authorities




Ankara - A request by Christians in the Turkish capital of Ankara, to construct a church, has been rejected by local authorities. The selected location of Kırkkonaklar has instead been allocated to the building of a new mosque.


You were saying?

Seems a lot of mass media is ignoring these protests.

Wonder what is really going on.....

Ya, I feel your pain bro. Been dealing with the same attitude on here. Perhaps some don't like it that the Islamic leaning political party in power may be overthrown. Keep on hearing "secular" when the very people of Turkey say they are dealing with Islamic leaning government.

They were absolutely raging earlier....things have calmed down.

The police let them into the square en mass, then once corralled like cattle they fired canisters of gas into the crowd.....knowing they had no where to run.

The MSM ignored Tea Party rallies. They ignored Occupy rallies (when it suited them).

Why is it a surprise that the media is ignored a non-state supported protest?

I saw this a lot in Germany. I saw it in Britain. I've seen it in the US. I can imagine the same in Turkey.

What western leaning government? Erdogan is absolutely the opposite of it and that's the main reason why the progressive part of Turkish society is feeling compelled to protest before it is to late and their country is transformed into an Islamic Republic. The actual government is the one opposing Israel, the actual government is the one showing signs of affinity with Russia and especially, the actual government is undermining the secularism which has characterized Turkish society since 1920 (with reforms done by Ataturk) by implementing every day new laws that wipe out that secularism and install a sharia ruled state.

Regardless of what Erdogan says or does, he is a West leaning puppet who years for an Ottoman revival of power for Turkey. He is caught inbetween supporting the West and supporting Arab people.

Put it this way, would America really keep nuclear missiles/weapons at a Turkish AirForce Base if they were not close allies?

And AgentUSAsupporter....my respected foe -

the fact they support the extremist islamic Syrian rebels doesnt prove anything.

We all know the West is supporting this mercenry lead army.

US,France,Germany,Saudi Arabia all support this Al-Qaeda labelled muslim extremists.

Turkey supporting them all fits in.

they want to remove Syria and Iranian influence from the region for the betterment of Israels position.

Divide and Conquer.

Then instate a Kurdish Islamic republic right in the middle. Its another reason why Turkey is supporting the carve up of the middle east.

The people of Turkey, extremist or not, do not like the position their government has been taking in all this either.

They want to support Assad against the injustice of the West.

Furthermore to do with this -

www.globalresearch.ca...




Turkey has been playing a similar game in its border areas with the Syrians, including Turkish artillery exchanges with Syria. The Turkish government has been unsuccessfully been trying to galvanize the Turkish public to support its unpopular hostile policies against Syria. In both cases the real victim, Syria, has been turned into the aggressor, while the perpetrators are presented as the victims.





In the case of Turkey, the Syrians have not been trying to instigate a conflict with Turkey. Turkey’s AKP government has itself been actively supporting terrorism against Syria and allowing foreign forces to use Turkish soil as an infiltration point and logistics base. This, however, has not stopped the Turkish government from blaming the car bombings in Reyhanli on Syria from the moment they happened and without even conducting a proper investigation. Prime Minister Erdogan and his cabinet did not even acknowledge the more likely probability that the bombs were set by their own allies fighting against the Syrian government. Some would call the bombings in Reyhanli a “blowback” of some sorts while others have not ruled out the possibility of a “false flag” perpetrated to frame Syria. In fact, it turns out that Turkish officials were aware that the terrorist bombings were going to take place. Redhack, a Turkish activist group of internet hackers, released a series of cables revealing that Ankara’s Gendarmerie Intelligence, which is responsible to Turkey’s Ministry of the Interior, was aware that the attacks in Reyhanli were going to take place.


seems Erdogan is taking a leaf or two out of the pages of America's False Flag manual, and how to manipulate your citizens opinions.......

In my opinion...he's a dead man walking.

Furthermore -

The role of Turkey in -US-NATO-Israel war against Syria




As for Turkey’s phony conflict with Israel, which began with the May 2010 Gaza Freedom Flotilla massacre, has also been fully exposed when Turkey overtly supported Israel’s blatant acts of military aggression against Syria in 2013. The repercussions of the May 2013 Reyhanli false-flag bombing attacks near Turkey’s border with Syria is the latest evidence of a deep crisis of legitimacy for the United States, Britain, Israel and Turkey; the four countries whose alliance has been dominating the political scene in the Middle East and beyond since 1990.


Recep is a puppet, simple as that and his people know and see it because of the above quote.

Some historical quotes/references:

“Syria is worrying that it will be attacked by Turkey from above and by Israel from below. It is worrying that it will be squeezed between us like a sandwich.” [Israeli President Ezer Weizman (1993-2000), interview with Guneri Civaoglu,Caesarea, Israel, 11 June 1996] [1]

“Although Turkey has never taken part in a war alongside us, it is a positive factor for Israel that Syria has an enemy on its northern frontiers. Syria will never attack Turkey, but it cannot exclude the reverse.” [Former Israeli Defence Minister Uri Or (1995-1996), interview with Alain Gresh, Tel Aviv, October 1997] [2]


Still dont beleive Turkey is a Western Puppet?


The same day, Israel launched another air attack on Damascus. [9] In response to this second act of war by Israel against Syria, Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, lashed out at Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad for war crimes that were actually perpetrated by NATO’s international mercenary forces in Syria [10] :


Towing the Western Propaganda line when all the intelligence out there proves the Syrian Rebels backed by the West were the ones using the chemical weapons.


Four days after the second Israeli air attack on Damascus and United Nations’ statement on the mercenaries’ use of chemical weapons in Syria, Mr Erdogan gave an interview to the U.S. television channel NBC, where he said that if the U.S. were to launch a ground military invasion of Syria, then Turkey would support it. [12] However, as this statement amounted to a de facto declaration of war on Syria, it has been instantly censored by the NBC and the Prime Minister’s office issued a press release which denied it. [13] Here are excerpts from the edited version of this interview:

“ERDOGAN: It is clear that the regime has used chemical weapons and missiles. They used about 200 missiles, according to our intelligence. There are different sizes missiles. And then there are deaths caused by these missiles. And there are burns, you know, serious burns and chemical reactions. And there are patients who are brought to our hospitals who were wounded by these chemical weapons. You can see who is affected by chemical missiles by their burns. [14]

NBC: So has President Assad crossed President Obama’s red line?

ERDOGAN: A long time ago. My question is, the United Nations, U.N. Security Council, are you doing what you are supposed to do? Why do you exist in the first place? What is your job? I mean, is there a deadline, like they are not going to move until 1 million people are killed?

NBC: Will you encourage President Obama to get involved directly in the situation in Syria?

ERDOGAN: We want the United States to assume more responsibilities and take further steps.

NBC: What is the just punishment for Mr. Assad, in your view? What is your message to him today, at this moment in history?

ERDOGAN: Well, I am saying that he should leave Syria immediately. Sooner or later, the opposition are going to get him. And I hope that his end does not be like Qadhafi’s.” [15]




Erdogan should ensure that he doesnt end up like Qaddaffi, actually, a better comparison would be Romania's Cziaczescu (spelling) , communist primeminister that was overthrown and killed trying to escape in his helicopter when the public protests attacked his presidential palace and got him.

Not some western funded Arab Uprising.

Ceausescu was the Romanian president until December 1989. He did try to escape by helicopter on 22 December, only to get caught and executed with his wife on 25 Dec after a very short (staged, if you ask me) trial.

Here's a strange simillarity between the 1989 Romania and the 2013 Turkey:

In '89 Romania succesfully paid all foreign debts it had (the Romanian people endured a lot for this). A couple of months later a coup was organised, and the power was taken by some other wing of the communist party. Romania was under agreements with the IMF for at least 15 of the last 20 years, with the Fund imposing some drastic measures (huge state companies sold or closed, price increases ect). The IMF delegation is expected to arrive in Bucharest this month, for talks regarding a new loan...

In 2013 Turkey announced they paid in full the loans from the same IMF. And now these protests...

It seems history does repeat itself. Or is somebody pushing the repeat button maybe?
